Not only did I have a great experience and result with Dr. Polterock, he really knows his stuff! I am a little surprised to read some of the negative reviews from others, but I am aware that you will never please everyone. He explained everything so clearly, his surgical results were excellent, and I give Dr. Polterock the highest recommendation with no reservations.

If you need to see an ENT in anything less than a month I suggest you give him a shot. Excellent staff and personable doctor. Not gabby but efficient. Short wait times also. I was there three times and was out each time in less than half an hour.

I wish I could give this review no stars!! This Dr. sucks!! He's very rude and doesn't like to listen to what the patients have to say... he thinks he knows it all... I went for a septoplasty due to my lack of breathing .. I go in and come out still the same! I'm now visiting a professional Dr. & I tell him is my nose still deviated he says "yes, your past doctor didn't do anything!" Unbelievable.. this Dr is not worth going to, he's not experienced!

Worst doctor ever! He wanted to force me to have surgeries I didn't want to have and then got so upset when I refused. Beware of this doctor have second opinions as he may be practicing unnecessary surgeries!!!
